Thornbury Castle

Thornbury Castle is a castle in Thornbury, South Gloucestershire, England. It was begun in 1511 as a home for Edward Stafford, 3rd Duke of Buckingham. The site was occupied by a manor house in 930. Only a part of the original plans for a very grand residence were carried out before the duke was beheaded, in 1521, on the orders of his distant cousin Henry VIII for alleged treason. Following the Duke's demise the Castle was confiscated by King Henry VIII of England, who stayed at the Castle for ten days in 1535 with his queen, Anne Boleyn.
